'''John Claudius Loudon''' (April 8, 1783&ndash;December 14, 1843) was a Scottish botanist, landscape architect, [[cemetery ]] designer, and author, as well as the most influential horticultural journalist of his time. Through an extraordinarily prolific publishing career, Loudon raised popular knowledge of and interest in botany, horticulture, and agriculture while shaping contemporary taste in gardens, public parks[[park]]s, and domestic architecture throughout Britain, America, and much of the Western world.<ref>Paul Elliott, Charles Watkins, and Stephen Daniels, "'Combining Science with Recreation and Pleasure': Cultural Geographies of Nineteenth-Century Arboretums," ''Garden History'' 35 [Supplement: Cultural and Historical Geographies of the Arboretum] (2007): 9&ndash;10, [https://www.zotero.org/groups/54737/items/itemKey/QVC4V4ZP view on Zotero]; Colleen Morris, "The Diffusion of Useful Knowledge: John Claudius Loudon and His Influence in the Australian Colonies," ''Garden History'' 32, no. 1 (Spring 2004): 101&ndash;123, [https://www.zotero.org/groups/54737/items/itemKey/FXHIH2XU view on Zotero]; Margaretta J.
